This is my favortie quote by Nelson Mandela. I have always believed that education is a powerful tool when it comes to being a force for change. If you aren’t educated and knowledgable on the issues that plague our world, then how can you be an advocate for the greater good? I am very sad about Mandela’s passing. I would have loved to have had the chance to meet him. It would have been wonderful to listen to him share his stories and learn what kept him motivated to keep fighting for what he thought was right and just.
There have been many great leaders in the past century but I can think of few that showed as much passion and courage as Mandela.
May his soul rest in peace.
